Present Parkinson's disease treatment strategies are far from ideal for a variety of reasons; it has therefore been suggested that partial dopamine receptor agonism might be a potential therapeutic approach with potentially fewer side effects. In the present study, we describe the in vitro characterization of the nonergot ligand SLV308(More)
The synthesis and SAR of 3-alkyl-4-aryl-4,5-dihydropyrazole-1-carboxamides 1-23 and 1-alkyl-5-aryl-4,5-dihydropyrazole-3-carboxamides 24-27 as two novel cannabinoid CB(1) receptor agonist classes were described. The target compounds elicited high affinities to the CB(1) as well as the CB(2) receptor and were found to act as CB(1) receptor agonists. The key(More)
Cyclic-adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) plays an important role in cell signalling and is widely used as a marker for receptor activation and as a target for treating various diseases. In this paper we present the development and validation of a new method for the determination of cAMP and ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and other nucleotides in a biological(More)
We have investigated a series of 7-azaindoles as potential partial agonists of the alpha4beta2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR). Three series of 7-azaindole derivatives have been synthesized and evaluated for rat brain neuronal nicotinic receptor affinity and functional activity. Compound (+)-51 exhibited the most potent nAChR binding (Ki = 10 nM).(More)
In the present study, our aim was to investigate whether the novel highly selective 5-hydroxytryptamine6 (5-HT6) receptor antagonist SLV can ameliorate impairments in cognition and social interaction with potential relevance for both schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease (AD). SLV sub-chronically - treated Wistar rats reared in isolation showed(More)
